Slovakia is an old soul. The nation's roots stretch back to the ninth-century state of Great Moravia. The Slovaks would become part of the Hungarian Empire, under whose rule they remained for a thousand years. After the fall of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the end of World War I, Slovakia joined forces with the Czechs to form Czechoslovakia, ruled first by the Nazis and then by the Soviet Bloc. The peaceful Velvet Revolution of 1989 swept the communists from power and ushered in a return to democracy and a market economy. On 1 January 1993, Czechoslovakia became two nations, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
